Black Sabbath legend Ozzy Osbourne has stated that he will never retire from his music career, even amid his Parkinson’s diagnosis which has affected his mobility.
The rock star has been in quarantine since March due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, but he has vowed to finish what he started by returning and continuing his postponed tour.
In an interview with The Mirror, Ozzy said: “I ain’t done yet, I’ve a lot left.”
When asked about his future in music, the rock star responded: “You know the time when I will retire? When I can hear them nail a lid on my box.”
Referring to the feeling of having the audience jumping to his music, Ozzy said: “It is the best love affair of my life.”
“The party is on, man. I feel honoured people still want to see me.” – He added.
The rock star went public with his Parkinson’s diagnosis in January. Talking about his diagnosis, Ozzy said: “Well the one questions from me was, ‘Is it a terminal illness?’, and the guy says, ‘No, but life is’.”
“It’s just another thing on my plate I have got to deal with. I’m not in the slightest worried about it.” – Ozzy continued.
Ozzy Osbourne was the vocalist for Black Sabbath which was an English rock band formed in Birmingham in 1968 by guitarist Tony Iommi, drummer Bill Ward, bassist Geezer Butler, and Ozzy. They are often referred to as pioneers of heavy metal music.
The rock band did very well selling over 70 million records worldwide as of 2013. Though Ozzy also has his own rock star solo career which was just as successful having him claim 15 Top 40 albums.
